Guess its take a gamble time folks, Do you want one ? If so you got two choices. Bite the bullet now and pay whats being asked or take a gamble that the price will come down at all.
I think there is a very real possability that if Nvidia dont release competative cards before a few of the better DX11 games are released then there may well be rises never mind drops.
Im happy with what i have for now, if i had not upgraded in june then i would be getting a non referance 5770 as soon as one i liked hit the stores, but as it is i need to justify the outlay and just cant pay what i see as over the odds just for DX11. Thats my personal view from my set of circumstances.
Anyone with a card (ATI) that starts with a number lower than a 4, well than it makes sense but for me not really. If i have to wait for the Northern Islands cards then so be it.
